The village of Brinkworth lies between Royal Wootton Bassett and Malmesbury in North Wiltshire, surrounded by beautiful countryside and views over the Dauntsey Vale to the North Wessex Downs. Much of Brinkworth village is a linear settlement along the east-west B4042, extending for just over 4 miles (6.5 km). The village is sometimes described as the longest in England, although other villages make the same claim!
With a population of approximately 1,250 people, the village is a thriving community with a plethora of events, clubs and activities for all ages.
Brinkworth Earl Danby’s CS Primary School is a popular and successful village primary school, with the younger children attending the school site in Dauntsey and the older cohort attending the site on School Hill, Brinkworth, prior to moving on to Senior School in Malmesbury or Royal Wootton Bassett.
Dating back to 1360 (although it was probably during Saxon times that the first church was built) the beautiful church of St Micheals and All Angels sits in the heart of the village and serves the village of Brinkworth as part of the Woodbridge Group of Churches.
Annual community events such as the Brinkworth Flower and Produce Show, the Church Fete and Bonfire Night are regularly held on the local recreation ground, where you will also find play equipment for the children including a zip wire. The rec has also been home to many special events such as the Jubilee and the Coronation.
The local pub is The Three Crowns, situated opposite the Church on the village green. It is a popular venue serving Brinkworth and the surrounding areas with real ales, tasty meals and occasional event evenings.
Brinkworth Parish Council works to represent the residents of Brinkworth. The Parish Council consists of 11 Councillors; their contact details and further information is available on the ‘Your Councillors’ page.
